How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since my humble beginning as a Guild Intern, I have had opportunities afforded to me that stretch me in ways that align with my values and push me to be a little uncomfortable while still having welcome support.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

My team works on ensuring that new users can find what they need and engage with our platform easily.
